Nice pics and good ride reports.

Here in India, I can not find anything close to a dual sport. everything is a small 100-200 CC street bike so you are lucky to have those bikes. But on the other hand, here everyone dual sports on the street bikes anyway with 2 to 3 people on them.

Keep the pics coming.

these aren't dual sports... they are just 200cc Chinese bikes with some dirt rubber on them...

You can get a new spanker on alibaba for 400$ if you buy a dozen or so!

the area where I'm in wasn't affected by the quake. Things where just closed cuz it was sunday. Apparently Pestel is pretty lively during market days. I just happen to work all other days except sunday, so i'll always find the towns a bit deserted when I visit them

Mehigh,

Your pictures are really nice, thank you for posting. I have ridden the other side of the island (Dominican Republic) but never crossed into Haiti.

Thanks,

Yeah them Dugouts, we spent a lot of time anchored way off P-a-P ,and they would come up with loads of carvings to sell us. Looks like it would be pretty hard keeping a true course with that one.

I had a feeling you'd have a hard time taking pics of the people.....Voodoo !!!

I kinda fixed the videos in my previous post. The upload speed at home is to slow and youtube is blocked at work so i have to upload to my google+ but it doesn't seem to want to embed the videos in here, so you'll have to deal with links!
